At what point in our lives do we realize
Love only leaves tears in our eyes
Previous attempts cause fears beyond repair
Leaving you to wonder if anyone truly cares
Or if time after time you will greet defeat
Forcing you to kneel at Jesus's feet
Asking for peace in your heart
So that it doesn't feel as if it's being torn apart

Missing you is constant.
Timeless.
Like the air I breathe.
It never leaves.
It lingers on until my dreams find a way of bringing you back to me...
and then some more.

Shwe,
I have known you long enough. Don't ever doubt yourself or your confidence. I have always loved you for the way you are with me and otherwise. The way you look really does not matter if you are happy and glowing. You should enjoy every moment that you get.
For me you will always be my Shwe. A little naughty, a little funny,  smart & simple. There are very few moments I have seen you actually being happy and laughing. I would always want you to have more such moments in life.
All those few times I have got to spend with you, I have registered everything in my mind. Those moments are so precious because they give me the feeling of being with my person. You are my person Shwe.  No matter ...

Occasionally we hear people say that they want to "get away from it all" and find some fabled paradise where no one will hurt them anymore. These sensitive souls are merely nursing wounds and have no real intention of facing realities constructively. We can never get away from the consequences of wrong thinking because it is part of ourselves and will accompany us wherever we may go. Nor is it profitable to toss our pennies in a wishing-well. If we create a concept of happiness which depends for its fulfillment upon an impossible state of society or an improbable change in the attitudes of persons around us, we are simply deceiving both our minds and hearts. Everyone wants to change the world...

Dear friends,

After 7 years of bringing letters to the world, we now must say goodbye to lettrs, despite best efforts to keep it going.  The world has changed, where imagery dominates the the mobile medium.  The psychology of letter writing has changed too.

Thanks to everyone who was part of the lettrs experience. It means a lot to me, really.

Maybe one day we can produce a next generation lettrs, that is simpler and aligns more to how the mobile medium operates in the shallows.  

So please save your letters, as in a few short days we will close down this once beautiful place.

In lettrs,

I know all about darkness.
It can keep you hidden,
when you don’t want to be seen
but there is no freedom
to be found from being invisible.
You can’t hide from your thoughts, they linger.
Do not be afraid to acknowledge
the unspoken words,
be vocal,
find your voice.

I'm starting to feel a shift in myself again,
As I am tired of punishing myself for my dark past.

Love has come & gone for me,
Sometimes it has been me at fault

Other times, it wasn't at all

Loving myself has always been a struggle for me,
It has always been easier for me to focus my attention on someone else

Well this year has forced me to re-learn what it means to love myself,
I fell back into some self destructive patterns.

& frankly, the growth I want has to start within.

So I'm shedding my skin & welcoming a new chapter.
Where my boundaries aren't up for discussion, & I see myself as a force to be reckoned with.

Deep down, I know how great of a person I...

Hello stranger,

It's raining here today. Steaming cups of ginger tea are being passed on by cold hands. There is conversation and laughter, and the rain.

Mohd. Rafi is singing in the background,
Asking his loved one not to leave just yet. His heart has not yet had enough.
The pitter patter of raindrops on leaves adds an urgency to his request. Rains and goodbyes are apparently immiscible.

I sneak out quietly to the terrace, while the same stories are being recalled for the hundredth time downstairs. You feature in most of them; we all do. Tales from the good old days. But nostalgia can only do so much.

And now, I stretch out my palm to touch the rain. And tha...

Appreciate that there will be moments without big wins,
Appreciate every single mood swing,
Appreciate the fact that it is just how your heart sings,

I like the wind.

There is no need to fall

I have everything to gain.
Just a little bit of pain.

I sit on this chair.
Storm is trying to scare.
It has started to rain.
The thunder is insane.

I love it to the core.
I just want it more.
I am the drenched one
Letting it out until I'm done.

So happily enjoying the storm.
I am now in full form.
This Storm has got me trained.

I was afraid to open my window which was closed since long enough. I was comfortable in my own space without any foreign air sprinting inwards. I was afraid, that the dust that covered my table won't look pretty anymore. I was afraid of the change.

And then, a storm broke the glasses of my windows, it rushed in and created a mess. As if it changed everything. But now that every shattered piece of glass was on the floor and I was unwilling to clean it up, somehow I gathered my strength and started cleaning all the mess bit by bit every passing hour.

I got tired and I slept. I had a sound dreamless sleep finally after so long. When...

But as the resilient beings that we are, we adjust, we adapt and we compromise. We move forward carrying this heavy load, and then we thrive.

The taste of purple : A short story

I was a kid, rather a chubby kid. I guess about 6 year old. It was first day of school and I was early enough to occupy the first bench. The next day I saw a boy sitting at my place and I told him to sit somewhere else. To me, as a kid, it was MY place. How could someone else take it away from me ?

But he did not listen, he hit me in my stomach. I hit him on his face and that is how we started fighting. But then something happened. His leg slipped and he fell on the floor hitting his head on the table before falling. Moments later there was a clear bump on his forehead and it had turned blue.

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.
So my dream girl exists I've finally found her
Scarred and beaten but a spirit unbroken.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

His Love Is Accumulating Dust On My Heart. It's piling up. He who walks into my life first decides to run his finger over it. It's hell, hopeless & disappointing when the dust sticks to him & he wipes it off. Even my tears are unable to wash it off.

Loneliness creeps in like a black, disgusting devil but I've rose from the grave, dug in the way of underworld. I'm able to battle with him!

I cried when I found out that I would need to give up my safe haven in days not even sure of. It's hard to lose peace in a place especially when you started getting comfortable there. I wanted this so badly... have a place to call home and not having to move again, but it seems like I'm destined to live out my life in constant move, and it is tiring... but for what it's worth...

these were just lines that translated my thought and i casually opened lettrs to record it, like i always do, with no routine no expectation, because i had always known that this would be that digital corner that will always be there when i am down, low, happy, wondering, thinking, contemplating, guilty, pleased, lovestruck, depressed, joyous, empowered, and every other possible feeling i could experience, this was a safe haven a nook a corne...

Two days back I came to the app totally unprompted. I don't write as much anymore, I come here only to remind myself of the person I was before. I was taken aback when I read lettrs was going away.

My journey in letters started 6 years back in my formative years. Even though my writing wasn't nearly as polished as I would have liked it to be, this app was the place where I wrote enough to add the word "writer" as one of my descriptions.

This platform was the same place that brought great authors like Paulo Coelho to read my words, I could've never even dreamt in my wildest dreams that I'd be interacting with one of the authors who has changed the world.

When everyone is saying goodbye to lettrs or may say lettrs is saying goodbye to us....I would like to thank this app not because it helped me to pen up things which I would have never wrote otherwise . I also came to know one thing about me that I can also words not in an excellent way but still in a bit poetic way. This app provided me with a space to live my imagination . I will not say that it reflects my journey of life but yes it reflects journey of my imagination.

As you are going away, and everybody is saying you goodbye in their own ways, I thought I should not shy away from this that have created which feels like a space in my heart, so here it goes.
I wrote my first lettr on September 1st 2014, I thought let's try out this application, little did I knew it won't remain just an application but will become a part of my life and will effect the course of my life.
As I've grown from 19 year old to 25, I've been through different phases of my life and one can clearly see it by going through my feed. Lettrs became a safe space for me, a place where I was never judged for feeling what I truly felt. It became a beautiful diary of my emotions, ...

I know all about darkness.
It can keep you hidden,
when you don’t want to be seen
but there is no freedom
to be found from being invisible.
You can’t hide from your thoughts, they linger.
Do not be afraid to acknowledge
the unspoken words,
be vocal,
find your voice.

Appreciate the way that you feel things,
Appreciate that there will be moments without big wins,
Appreciate every single mood swing,
Appreciate the fact that it is just how your heart sings,
Appreciate the harsh and the high winds,
Appreciate your strong wings,
Appreciate that not everyone needs to be saved,
Appreciate the fallen and the brave,
Appreciate your day and how you spend it,
Appreciate the people who are present when you end it.

Be careful who you give your heart to,
fire is not dangerous,
people that do not respect or understand it are.
Your heart should never be a reward
for the kind of person that wants the promotion
but is not committed to the cause.
There should be a spark
and that spark should turn into a raging fire.
If you find that you are constantly having to fan the flames,
in the hope that they will never fade,
then it is energy misspent.
Energy that belongs to you.

Do not allow yourself
to become lost
to negative thoughts.
You are not alone
in your level of thinking.
Things might seem impossible right now
but finding your voice
and asking for help
is the first step
on the road to recovery.

I will not be a hearty meal that you feed on
as though I am just something to be consumed
until your level of hunger is satisfied.
I am more than that.
When you dine at my table,
there is an expected level of behaviour,
if you cannot comply,
do not expect a feast.

I have danced with you,
the world paused,
and in that moment,
we were finally free.
I have held you,
but my arms can’t seem to forget,
the way forever feels.
I have loved you,
you have loved me too,
although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,
in the end,
they always return,
to the sea.

Sometimes, you must experience a breakdown in order to break down all of the things that are breaking you down. Once your life feels like a mess with nothing but darkness and rain, you will begin to focus your energy into alleviating the stress and finally healing the pain. @PLECCA

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

                       "You’re not a failure just because you had a setback"

Failure is difficult for anyone. But just because you failed in the past doesn’t mean you’re doomed in the present. The lessons you’ve learned from your epic fail can help you attain bigger wins today. Nothing can stop you from turning your failure into a massive win.

Often times things go OK or even better than that. But on some days they don’t. You make a mistake, have a setback or you simply fail. So what’s needed is a smart and self-kind way to handle such situations instead of letting them lead to vicious self-beatings and to them dragging you down into negativity for the day or month.

The first thing...

            Two Super Humans

During the last few days i have been engaged in an audit. New places, new people but the same old techniques. It was almost getting monotonous and mechanical and i wasnt getting much fun at work.  

While I was waiting for some misstatements to be found like the hound longing for blood, unintentionally I met super humans, not one but two.

1. The ever smiling accountant

For the fisrt time in my life i saw an accountant who keeps her smile on even when misstatements are pointed out. Being an auditor with four years of experience, i had never met such a pleasent one.

We, auditors,  are never used to have a look at the personal life of the accountants. But some ...

आज मैंने एक ताल देखा।
सूखा था, गमगीन था।
दो दिन पहले देखा था मैंने उसको,
झूम रहा था; झमाझम बारिश में वो।
दो दिन मिला ना प्यार पानी का उसको,
लहराना ही भूल गया; बताए अपना हाल वो किसको!
हम तो फिर इंसान हैं...
दोस्तों के बिना वीरान हैं!!
दो पल की दोस्ती में खुश हो जाते हैं,
ज़िन्दगी भर साथ रहने के सपने बुन जाते हैं।
तीसरे दिन उस ताल की तरह,
साथी का साथ जब छूट जाता है....
मायूसी और अकेलापन रह जाता है।
पर उम्मीद का दामन ना छोड़ पाता है!
उस ताल को भी तो है उम्मीद,
एक दिन फिर लौटेगा उसका मीत...

I convinced myself that I was happy just surviving
But I've learned its never too late to start reviving
All my buried goals and aspirations
From the stagnant state of procrastination
For there hides a deceptive comfort in misery
Because of its familiar repetitive history
A zone that I have known all too well
A zone in which I am no longer willing to dwell

Running hobbled
Tripping over rocks
Colliding with walls
Every turn dead end
Every progression resistant to momentum
Hacking through the brush surrounding
Pushing my way through
I stumble through
Relief of obstacle
Moving with greater ease
No impediments block my path
All I ever needed was the final push
Choose the right path
With enough will and strength
Ease found in the freedom of direction
All paths are now open
Choose
Decide
There’s no more ends
Only beginnings are beyond

   Always hope but never
                    Expect

Hope to want something to happen and think that it is possible. So basically when you say I hope.... It's because you want that things to happen whether you think it's possible or not.
Expect to think or believe that something will happen or that somebody will do something, expectations are usually depends on someone while hopes are not. Expectation and hopes are beliefs or wishes about the future,while hope is a feeling of optimism or desire that something will happen. Although these two are similar,they are not the same. Hope may have more positive and healthier than expectation since expectation, whose fulfilment usually depends on oth...

You will have days where the fog settles,
and your bones feel heavy.
On those days, it is important that you seek out the sun,
regardless of what form it takes.
A life ruled by darkness will never find peace.
The mental walls that you put up
that you think are keeping you safe,
are the reason you feel isolated and trapped.
Gather your thoughts,
bathe them in the light of the day
so that they may roam free
with a renewed sense of hope and energy.

DON'T PROMISE ME THE WORLD
-------------------------

Don't promise the world
I won't believe you.
My mind is practical
And no more romantic
Than a can filled with sand
By the filthy shore.

Don't expect me
To fall at your feet
As you lavish me with gifts.
I am not a toy,
Or a digger looking
For the comfortable
And common.

Do not be surprised
If I demand equal rights.
I do not want to be
A man.
What I want is to be
Treated like an equal
With great minds.

My opinions are mine.
I do not expect you
To believe them or adhere.
What I need is for you
Not to treat them as trash.
I need arguments and discussions
Not to be patronized.

You are welcome to be angry. ...

i could never hear the sound of my heart falling
i could never taste the words of love on my lips
i could never see the light in your eyes each morning

i would never hear your heart beating
i would never taste the promise of your love
i would never see the stars shine in your eyes each evening

i should never hope for this feeling
i should never beg for this moment
i should never be left wanting

Months ago the heat squandered me. A long time before Summer ever started. I don't think about it enough, what I've been through and where I'm going. And I think about it too much.

I thought I would spend the rest of my life wasting away in one place with nowhere to go but down. I thought there was nothing for me at all until persistent voices broke down my deafening walls. Then I looked a little bit closer. I realized that I could have anything I put forth the effort for. Why shouldn't I? And what more do I have to do other than breathe to be loved? It's the contract I entered into, being born. As long as I breathe I am loved. As long as I live and after I die to live again.

The first letter goes to myself.

Learn to make it on your own, learn to trust... only yourself.
Learn to love yourself first, and then who deserves it.
Learn to understand, to understand many things that you may not accept.
Learn to observe.
Learn to listen.
And above all, learn not to be ashamed of being who you are.

From myself, to myself.
And also to those who need it.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

And there will come a day,
When tears have no place here.
And I fear its arrival, for the
Moment the rain clears and the
Clouds move on, is the second
The sun starts to shine, on a Time
When we are just you and I.

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...
